Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, August 5, the IH-45 West Frontage Road between FM 1374 and FM 1375 will be closed and the newly constructed FM 1374 cross street will be opened, weather permitting. The closure is to allow TxDOT’s contractor to construct the concrete pavement at the intersection of FM 1374 and the West Frontage Road. The East Frontage Road, FM 1375 and FM 1374 will remain open during this closure. Drivers should reduce speed and maintain safe traveling distances between vehicles and be prepared for delays during this closure. Detour signs will be placed along the detour routes to guide traffic through the detour.
IH-45 will be reconstructed to pass over local roads (including FM 1374 and FM 1375) to increase public safety by reducing any interference with IH-45 traffic due to future bridge maintenance and to eliminate the damage caused by over-height loads.
The IH-45 lane closures are part of the reconstruction of IH-45 that will involve replacing the existing four-lane divided highway with a six-lane highway with a concreted median barrier in southern Walker County. The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2021.
During the 4.5-year project, multiple lane shifts and relocation of traffic will take place at various times to accommodate construction activity.
